Bliss… the word that describes this past weekend! The sun was out all weekend, the weather was warm and comfortable, hovering around 65 degrees, and the energy was uplifting!
I love a great spring day, and we were Blessed to have two in a row, and they fell on a weekend, to boot! How lucky can we get?
It was a productive, yet fun, weekend for me. We started Saturday morning out by getting three truckloads of mulch for the gardens. They look spectacular right now. I wish the weeds would just stay away for the rest of the summer!
From there, Jeff made eggs for brunch (thanks for the jumbo eggs, Janice!) and then we headed off to Cedar Lake for some fishing. The crappies and sunnies were biting, so it was a lot of fun. We kept twelve fish, but threw many smaller ones back in. We’ll get back to them later in the season. LOL
After eating grilled elk steaks for dinner, we had a small fire in our fire pit. Dianne joined us for a great night with good music and plenty of stories.
After a nice evening of sleep on the 500 thread Egyptian cotton sheets (off came the flannel sheets!) and our new, spring-looking bed comforter, we shared a pot of coffee before Jeff went out to mow the lawn – the first mow of the season!
I spent the morning getting caught up on email, Mankato work, Facebook, and writing some yoga newsletters (soon to be posted). Then it was out the door for painting! First I painted the garden bench a wonderful spring shade of green. Then I touched up the plastic resin chairs and the wicker chairs that go on the deck. I ran out of white spray paint, so Jeff and I took a trip to Lowe’s, and then we headed over to Sailers, as I wanted to put a few pansies on my window box and front planter.
Bills got paid, new lights got assembled, and I am now getting caught up here in the blogs. It doesn’t get any better than this, when we are looking at being productive!
It sounds like Mercury is in retrograde until May 11. That is usually a warning to hold on tight because it could be an interesting ride! My intention is to become an observer and just be present during this planetary alignment.
